Term 5!
This term, homework will be available on Google Classroom.
Each week, there will be an English and Maths task.
When completing your homework, upload a clear photo if you can. If you need an exercise book with lines or squares to help you, please ask and we will provide you with one. If you are unable to upload photos, bring your homework book into school for your teacher to look at. 
Remember to tell us if there are any technical issues stopping you from accessing your Google Classroom
English and Maths homework will be set on Google Classrooms. Homework will be set each Friday and needs to be completed by the following Thursday morning. Spellings will be set each Friday (along with your homework) and you will be tested on the following Friday.
Your weekly spellings will be available on your Google Classroom. A spelling test will take place each week on a Friday. Along with your weekly spellings, remember to continue to practise the Year 5 and 6 spellings (find the doc. below). 
Our aim is to read at least three times per week. Any reading should be recorded in your Reading Record. Super Readers read a range of genres including fiction and non-fiction. You could read chapter books, magazines, comics, fact books or even information about a certain topic online.
Just remember, if you've read it: record it!
